The computer is a magic box. Many graphic images are hidden inside it. This book is a beginner's introduction to calling forth these images as author Sato shows how to create figures with basic shapes - i.e., lines, arcs, squares and circles - and does so simply, clearly, and above all very logically. This is an everyday guide to computer illustrating, a collection of design ideas and a compendium of Mr. Sato's own computer art works. All the shapes in this book are black and white, but it is a black and white world full of potential. Just looking at the myriad manifestations of form is a joy, but for those who will use it to begin creating their own shapes this book offers far, far greater pleasure.

An unpaid review that reads like a paid review.
This book is a box. Within it are many treasures for the designer, artist, kid with extra time, just about anyone. This book about simple Computer Graphics. Everything within also applies to paper collage. The images within are simple geometric shapes. The lessons are useful for any age. Instructions are so simple they are usually obvious. This book should be standard reading for anyone interested in computer graphics. Even if you don't care about making graphics, this is still an interesting book. If you removed all the words it could stand on its own as a collection of images which are interesting to behold.
This book is also open source, so make your way to the internet and grab yourself a high res copy for free.
